“hercules” convict Indent does not record William Rice’s crime, nor that he was an “rebel”.

He would have been free by Servitude around March/April 1808.

Per Sydney Gazette 9 March 1806 - Rice had obtained Governor’s Permission, with twenty other men, to travel on the local colonially-owned brig “Venus” out of the colony, as it sailed on Thursday 20 March “for the southward” (per Sydney gazette of 23/2/1806), i.e.probably Tasmania and sailed again on 10 April “with supplies of provisions for H.M’s settlement at Port Dalrymple”.
